Manuka honey originates from New Zealand from bees that exclusively pollinate the Manuka tree. It has been used for centuries for its medicinal qualities as it is one of nature’s richest antimicrobial sources- from alleviating digestive issues to helping to clear up acne, Manuka honey really is a nutritional powerhouse. There’s been a huge buzz around Manuka honey skin care in recent years, with Manuka Doctor’s Global Ambassador, Kourtney Kardashian said to be a huge fan. But why is Manuka honey good for skin and how can you incorporate it into your skin care regime?

Manuka honey skin care uses

Manuka honey naturally contains hydrogen peroxide and methyglyoxal, two highly-potent antibacterial agents that can be used to treat an array of skin conditions, including acne, eczema, and scarring. Manuka honey’s anti-inflammatory properties can also help to soothe sore, inflamed skin by oxygenating pores which draws out and kills bacteria, helping to reduce skin blemishes and redness. Manuka honey’s healing properties can also neutralise the skin’s PH levels to balance the healthy bacteria on the skin; reducing breakouts and leaving your skin with a gorgeous glow.

Manuka honey properties

It’s no wonder that there’s such a buzz around Manuka honey- it’s got an incredible nutritional profile, including:

  • Amino acids
  • B Vitamins
  • Calcium
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese

The vitamins and minerals in Manuka honey can help to improve skin tone and texture and the Amino Acid profile can help to slough away dead skin cells to leave you with a healthy, glowing complexion.
